EventLogEntryCollection::Count Property

Gets the number of entries in the event log (that is, the number of elements in the EventLogEntry collection).

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

virtual property int Count {
	int get () sealed;

Property Value

Type: System::Int32
The number of entries currently in the event log.



An EventLogEntryCollection represents a dynamic list of all the entries in a log. Therefore, the Count property can change during the lifetime of the EventLogEntryCollection instance that you create. It is usually best to work with the Count property directly instead of assigning its value to a variable.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Count property to iterate through an EventLogEntryCollection object.

// Create a new EventLog object.
EventLog^ myEventLog1 = gcnew EventLog;
myEventLog1->Log = myLogName;

// Obtain the Log Entries of the Event Log
EventLogEntryCollection^ myEventLogEntryCollection = myEventLog1->Entries;
Console::WriteLine( "The number of entries in 'MyNewLog' = {0}", myEventLogEntryCollection->Count );

// Display the 'Message' property of EventLogEntry. 
for ( int i = 0; i < myEventLogEntryCollection->Count; i++ )
   Console::WriteLine( "The Message of the EventLog is : {0}", myEventLogEntryCollection[ i ]->Message );
